3.122.010 Purpose.

The purpose of this Chapter is to establish procedures for the creation of two types of Economic Improvement Districts, one in which the assessment is mandatory and applied to all properties except Exempt Properties, the second type in which the property owner can decide whether to be assessed, a voluntary assessment, as authorized by state law. The City will be ultimately responsible for administering and operating any Economic Improvement District , although the administration and operation may be carried out by others under contract with the City. All costs of administering and operating any Economic Improvement District will be paid entirely from assessments and fees actually received from the District; the City will not pledge its credit on behalf of the District; and the City will not loan funds to the District.
